Your Agents – Accredited Consultants in Real Estate (ACRE®)
A successful purchase starts with the right representatives. In fact, as your personal real estate consultants we can recommend other professionals to join your team, taking more of the responsibility off of your shoulders.
As Accredited Consultants in Real Estate (ACRE®), Tim and Susan Fennell have the training, skills and expertise to consult with you… not sell to you.
Other important members in every successful real estate transaction include the following:
A bank is not just a bank. Having the right backer can be extremely important – it is your money we’re talking about after all! Make sure that your lender and financial representative is someone with whom you feel comfortable, and be wary of any lender who promises you more than you think you can reasonably afford. Your lenders may or may not require an independent appraisal, and typically will make arrangements for the appraisal themselves.
Real Estate Attorney
Your home purchase is far too important a transaction to skimp on legal representation at the risk of leaving yourself open to costly future issues. Having the right lawyer who is willing to take the time to answer your questions and who specializes in real estate law makes a world of difference and can save you thousands of dollars.
No home inspection is 100% guaranteed, but a few hundred dollars to catch a major problem now is certainly better than many thousands to correct that ‘surprise’ down the road. Ask your agent for a recommendation.
Planning some renovations? You’re not the only one! The home renovation industry is booming, and in some markets, booking a contractor must be done months in advance (that’s a long time to go without a kitchen). Don’t let finding the right contractor slip through the cracks – planning ahead will almost certainly make your renovation smoother, and you contractor will appreciate the advance notice.
NOTE: You have every right to choose whomever you wish for all of these services. We are delighted to provide the contact information for several in each field who we know to provide the same kind of personal, consultative service that we provide.
